Alder Springs Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2021 Bohemian Series - Ernest Vineyards
$125.00   750mL
Alder Springs Vineyard is known for producing exceptional fruit, specifically focusing on Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, and Rhone red and white varietals on its 6,000 acre ranch (only about 140 acres are planted) in Northern Mendocino, just 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean and ranging from 1,700 to 2,700 feet of elevation. The cabernet is then a more restrained fruit than that from neighboring valleys.

Dense and opaque with a deep purple color, it suggests a wine with a youthful expression of the varietal. Aromatically subtle with notes of blackberries, mountain pine, black plums, cedar and a touch of pepper. The palate is a balance of black fruits and structural elements, with medium acidity. The tannins are gripping but round and ripe in nature. This is a Cabernet made with a lot of restraint and with a clear focus on elegance.
